Engr. Ganiyu Johnson, the Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, made the announcement on April 25, 2016.

At the Ministerial Press Briefing held at the Bagauda Kaltho Press Centre to commemorate Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s one year in office, Johnson revealed the state's strategy.

"At the inception of this administration, this Ministry put in place a three-fold strategy for the provision of road infrastructure.

The short term measure is the maintenance of existing roads known as “Operation Patch the Roads”, being carried out by the LSPWC, while the medium term strategy is aimed at the sustainability of existing roads, rehabilitation and construction of new roads, reconstruction of existing and expansion of highways and bridges.

A total of 224 on-going road projects were inherited from the previous administration in the various Local Government Areas of the State and I wish to inform you that 42 of these projects have been completed while construction works are still on-going on others”, he stated.

These on-going projects include pedestrian bridges, flyovers in Abule-Egba and Ajah, and an elevated highway, that will reduce traffic along Allen Round-about, Kudirat Abiola Round-about and Agidingbi Road-about.
